New York, NY, US



I am a recent graduate of Architecture from the Dublin School of Architecture. I have worked previously as an Architectural Designer in the Netherlands before completing my studies in Ireland in 2013.

I am an enthusiastic designer, critical thinker and dedicated individual. I set high standards of achievement for myself and enjoy a rigorous and holistic approach to design. I evaluate my work objectively and relish the opportunity to learn from those with whom I work. I have participated in numerous workshops, extracurricular events and competitions, all of which I have excelled at. During which time I have had the privilege of working with a diverse range of people, originating from different schools, offices, countries and backgrounds.

It is at this at stage in my career that I wish to build on former experience and enhance my knowledge of architecture, through practice, within a professional environment. As such I regard myself as an individual who is both determined and eager to learn, but importantly one who is commited to architectural culture and professional ethos.
